While driving with my friend, Kathy, yesterday we noticed a large turtle slowly crossing the road. It was a fairly busy road. We knew we had to save it. Kathy turned around and we rushed back and I picked up the turtle and got in the car. Kathy knew a slight bit about turtles. Enough to say "when they're scared they tend to pee." Just then the turtle let loose with what must have been a week's worth- all over me and the car. Of course, that got us laughing hysterically.
The turtle is about 12" long.
More later. I'm on my way now to the Turtle Rescue Society in San Diego.
